Tips:

  • 3D foam squares are a great way to add that extra #D effect to your card.
  • You can also first stamp and image to cardstock and then die-cut it… it’s whatever you find the easiest.
  • When stenciling with an ink pad, always dab, this prevents smooches when your ink pad is still quite wet.

Thanks for stopping by and wishing you Happy crafting!
